This archaeological desk based assessment was commissioned by Savills on behalf of Anglia Ruskin University to assess the potential impact of a proposed new sports facility development on the site of Howes Close Sports Ground (TL 4369 6068). Located to the northwest of the historic centre of Cambridge, the proposed development area is situated adjacent to zones of known archaeology, with an Anglo-Saxon cemetery located to the southwest at Girton College and the site of the former Medieval Howes Close settlement found less than 1km to the southeast of the proposed new facilities. Recent excavations south of Huntingdon Road have also revealed extensive prehistoric, Roman and Medieval activity.
